Sweetwater Advice

  • Carson McClain

    Not only is the Nord Lead 2X a great keyboard for live performance, it's also an amazing tool for sound design and scoring. This synth can get pretty extreme, so don't expect to be scoring the next Mel Gibson drama (unless it's an alien horror movie filled with psycho-drama and suspense!). But if you're looking for a versatile instrument suitable for multiple genres of electronic - or a synth capable of creating a never-heard-before soundset - the Nord Lead 2X is the board that will take you to the next level in your synth endeavors.

    synth is amazing,

    I had no idea that the Nord Lead 2X would have so much better quality
    than previous synths I've owned!

    Really Nice Unit

    I just purchased this unit and have only begun to scratch the surface but already I know it will be a main board with in my rig. I have a Micron as well as an SH32 and although good boards I beleive the Nord will prevail as the leader (no pun intended)and my main analog type sound engine. Anyway, I already love it and it looks awsome as well.

    Ever bought a piece of gear you thought would be great unpacked it stared at it turned it on played with it for a few hours then looked for the receipt so you could return it?
    This is not one of those pieces.After turning it on for the first time i spent 10 minutes just tweaking the first factory preset.I ran through briefly the other few hundred
    presets tweaking then resaving on the fly it was that easy.
    I have not opened the manual yet and may never.
    The keys feel great and the wood heavy duty springloaded pitch stick is great not to mention the pumice modwheel so your sweaty finger wont slip.
    It is a board that you may never give up, i have a few classic pieces like that that i pray will never die.
    10 for build quality
    10 for conrols
    9 for presets
    10 for my tweaked out ones
    10 for support and service from Sweetwater

    2x in a nut shell

    It sounds great even though it has no internal effects .Spdif would be nice, but not a must.Nice laminated manual.Sounds are versital and raw. Some people dont like anything but analog, I own v/a and soft synths and think they are missing out.
